I got an email from a WAX Nationreader (hey there, R.H.) who had asked me about a video he watched where the “pro” move is to have the hands moving upward at impact, creating a more level or shallower “swing bottom,” to increase consistency in ball-striking.
You don’t need a “perfect” swing to play good or even great golf, of course.
I’ve of course been spending a good deal of time pursuing that end on my part, but that’s because I’m a swing researcher and what else am I going to do, having set out 13 years ago to “figure it out once and for all?”
If you have any of the WAX Golf MCS videos (and I know many of you have nearly if not all of them that I’ve produced over the years), then I have to tell you, WAX Nation – THIS upcoming video is one that you will want, if only for what I believe will be its historic aspect.
I produced the simplest golf swing video I could last summer, giving everyone the blueprint for the MCS Golf Swing model in its most basic elements with “E = MCS.”
Now, I know that many of you have been waiting to see what 2018 was going to bring and I can now tell you all what’s cooking.
First, I might produce a “Long Drive MCS” video later in the year, but my primary interest right now is on the ultimate project for 2018, and I’ve already begun work on it. This is also something that was affecting the completion of the “MCS Golf Swing”eBook “Final Edition,” as you’ll see below.
I found the video from Mike Dunaway in which he talks about an Impact/Release concept (if you still like and need concepts, they work ’til you don’t need’em!), and it’s very similar to the “Swinging Into A Wall” post from earlier in the month.
So, Uncle JJmentioned it in the comments, but I couldn’t find it at the time, even though I agreed with him on the similarity.
I was very impatient all winter for the new season to begin, but the fact remains that it has been well worth the time spent working out the intricacies of the MCS Golf Swing model.
It’s not that I’ve added or discovered anything new – but having established my own proper and optimal setup for the swing, things are revealing themselves now that I didn’t see before when I had the model correct in theory but wasn’t nailing it in practice for myself 100%.
I’ve talked about the golf down swing consisting of a “pull” and “push” sequence, but it could be misleading, so I’ll clarify the first part about the “pull” aspect – it is or should be built-in from your position, back swing pivot and top position.
